Pseudomycetoma Due to Trichophyton schoenleinii Occurring in Two Brothers


A 14-year-old boy and his 16-year-old elder brother, who had generalized tinea corporis for 1 and 3 years respectively, developed multiple discrete, non tender soft tumors on the scalp, forehead, neck and extremities. The boys were well nourished and had no systemic diseases. Histopathologic examination of the subcutaneous nodules revealed a well encapsulated granuloma containing lobulated granules characteristic of mycetoma; these granules consisted of septated fungal hyphae with vesicles. The dermatophyte isolated from the tumors was identified as Trichophyton schoenleinii.
